History

Babushkin was founded in 1892 as a postal station Mysovaya (), its name derived from the Russian word Mys meaning "cape", referring to its location on the shores of Lake Baikal.

A few years later it was chosen as the eastern terminus for the train ferry across Lake Baikal, which was used as part of the Trans-Siberian Railway until the rail line around the southern shore was completed in 1905. It received town status under the name Mysovsk in 1902.

It was renamed Babushkin in 1942, in honor of the revolutionary Ivan Babushkin, arrested and executed at Mysovaya station in 1906.

Economy
